Over at the Writers At Cornell Blog, you'll find an interview I conducted today with poet Gabrielle Calvocaressi, author of the collection The Last Time I Saw Amelia Earhart. A recipient of the Rona Jaffe Award for Emerging Women Writers, she has been both a Stegner Fellow and a Jones Lecturer at Stanford University. She lives in Los Angeles. We discussed the long, apelike shadow of Wallace Stevens, porno drive-ins, and what precisely a prose poem thinks it's supposed to be. Gabby is funny as hell, and gave a great reading this afternoon--stop by and give it a look.
In addition, The Litlab is really cooking, with new weird stuff from William Walsh, Sharma Shields, Evan Sobel, Tim Reynolds, Adalena Kavanagh, and Dana Koster.
